Lunch Ideas That Are Super Quick To Made

Hey my loves,

for the past three weeks I have been trying to eat super healthy and nutritious and today I am sharing yet another recipe related blog entry with you. Last week I should you a whole week of my food and today I show you a couple of my favorite recipes.

Check out my ‘What I eat in a week’ entry right here.

I am showing you three different Lunch ideas that I have been loving in different variations over the past couple of days. They also make super delicious dinner options or in case of the avocado bun even for breakfast. So here they are:

AVOCADO & EGG ON A WHOLE GRAIN BUN

Processed with VSCO with e5 preset

INGREDIENTS:

  • one whole grain bun
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 of an avocado
  • salt, pepper
  • chili flakes

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Fry your two eggs in a pan until it has the consistency that you like. I like my yolk a little bit runny, so I leave as long on as the egg white needs to set. I like to season the eggs with some salt & pepper.
  2. Half an avocado, and half the piece, spread it on the buns with a fork. I find that if you use a fork it goes way easier than with a knife.
  3. Slice your tomato and spread it evenly on the two sides of the bun, season with salt, pepper and I like to add some chili flakes.
  4. Lastly, transfer your eggs from the pan to the buns and you’re done.

CHICKEN BURGER WITH TWO SAUCES Processed with VSCO with e5 preset

INGREDIENTS:

  • one whole grain bun
  • one chicken breast (I had one cut up, but a whole piece would obviously work better)
  • a couple of pieces of lettuce
  • one tomato
  • hummus
  • avocado
  • sweet and sour chili sauce
  • salt, pepper
  • paprika powder, chili

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a pan fry your chicken and season it to your tasting. I added salt, pepper and paprika powder.
  2. Divide your bun into two. On one side use hummus (I use the store ready one) and on the other side, smash one half on avocado and season it with salt, pepper and chili flakes.
  3. Place your lettuce and tomato on both sides.
  4. When your chicken is done cooking add about two big tablespoons of sweet and sour chili sauce and stir it in.
  5. Then transfer your chicken to the bun and you’re ready to go.

TUNA SALAD WITH FETA CHEESEProcessed with VSCO with e5 preset

INGREDIENTS:

  • Lettuce
  • half of a can of tuna
  • one half of a bell pepper (I used a yellow one)
  • one tomato
  • a couple of tablespoons of corn
  • 40 g of feta cheese
  • salt, pepper
  • balsamic vinegar

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Wash all of your veggies.
  2. Cut all veggies (except the corn, duh xD) into mouth-size pieces.
  3. Place all your veggies on a plate, add and mix in the tuna and corn.
  4. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and season it with salt and pepper.
  5. Last but not least, crumble the feta cheese on top and you’re ready to go.

What I Eat In A Day – Summer Edition 2016

Hey my loves,

it’s time for another ‘What I eat in a day’ post… I haven’t done one for a while so I thought I would share with you what I’ve been eating recently! I’m currently on a vegetarian diet just to see if I look and feel any different without eating meat, if you like me to I could write about my experience, just let me know in the comments.

Alright, let’s dive into the food:

Breakfast – Berry Muesli with fresh Raspberries

Breakfast.jpg

This breakfast is so filling and tastes absolutely amazing! The berry muesli consist of wholegrain oat flakes, mix of dried berries (raisins, strawberries, raspberries & currants), whole wheat flakes, dried apple, roasted buckwheat and sunflower seeds. I used vanilla soy milk and some fresh berries to complete my breakfast.

Lunch – Cheese, Egg & Avocado Sandwich

SAMSUNG CSCSAMSUNG CSC

What you will need:

2 slices of toast

1/2 of an avocado

a few cocktail tomatoes

1 egg

1 slice of cheese

1 lettuce wrap

salt & pepper

ketchup

I love this for lunch. It’s filling, tasty and gives me enough energy to last ’til Dinner. You throw your bread in the toast while frying an egg in a pan on medium heat, season it with salt and pepper and then you start to layer it all on top of the bread. You will start with a spread of avocado, I mushed mine together with a bit of s&p and a squeeze of lemon juice, then the lettuce follows. On top of that goes the sliced tomatoes and the egg. Then add your cheese and spread some ketchup on the second slice of bread and top it of! And last but not least enjoy this heavenly sandwich for Lunch or Dinner.

Dinner – Cheese Tortellini Salad with fresh Vegetables

Lunch.jpg

What you will need:

handful of arugula

handful of lamb’s lettuce

handful of lettuce

handful of cheese tortellini (boiled and cooled)

2-3 sliced radushes

1/4 of a bell pepper

some crumbled feta cheese

Dressing: oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper, agave syrup

Just throw the ingredients together and top it of with the dressing and enjoy this healthy and filling salad! You can obviously add or change up your vegetables and greens! That’s just what I had leftover in my fridge! I love making a salad with added tortellini or even sometimes with a bit of quinoa! It definitely adds something else to your salad!

I hope you enjoyed this entry! If you did make sure to give it a thumbs up! I would really appreciate it! What are your go-to recipes for summer? Tell me in the comments.
